Liverpool Sound City is celebrating it’s ninth year, bigger and better than always! With artists like Catfish and the Bottlemen, Shura and Circa Waves playing, why would you want to miss out? We spoke to the guys down in Sound City and they gave us some tips on what not to miss.

1. In Conversation Stage
Find out more about your favourite musicians, actors and industry figures at the Radio X In Conversation Stage. The line-up includes actor Paddy Considine, Irish songstress Roisin Murphy, Liverpool’s own Circa Waves and much more.

2. Brazilica
The UK’s only Brazilian carnival will pop up at Sound City on Saturday and get the party started Samba style. Head down to The Dome for 5:30pm and begin your night in style!

3. Ryoichi Kurokawa Exhibition
Across the weekend, there will be an exhibition by acclaimed Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa on the site’s Atlantic Stage. The exhibition is presented by FACT and Sedition and coincides with his solo show – unfold – at FACT.


4. Bowie and Prince Tribute
This year, Sound City has worked collaboratively with legendary artist Dave Lynch and FACT to create an immersive art installation which pays tribute to the late David Bowie and Prince.

5. Tall Ship
An iconic tall ship will once again be sailed right into the heart of the festival site, with festivalgoers able to get aboard and watch bands performing on the ship across the weekend.

6. Freeze Stage
Legendary Liverpool promoters Freeze will host the Baltic Warehouse Stage at this year’s festival with huge acts Leftfield (Live), Hot Chip (DJ Set) and Floating Points (Live) all appearing on the bill.

7. Viola Beach
Following the tragic Viola Beach news earlier in the year, Sound City will pay tribute to the Warrington band, who were set to play the festival.

8. Wider arts and spectacles
Sound City wouldn’t be the same without its immersive theatrical walkabout performances. This year, entertainment is provided by Tron Dancers, Disco Heads, fairies, break dancers and more!
